FINALS TOMORROW

Teal JumpGood luck to the following Rangers Team who are competing in finals tomorrow. Why not come down and cheer them on?

  • Rangers 17 – Nick McKinnon’s girls are up against St Peters @ 9.10 am on Court 10
  • Rangers 8 – Kerry Wilson’s team vs KBNC @ 12.40pm on Court 2
  • Rangers 6 – Danelle Spasojevic team meet Sapphires @ 12.40pm on Court 5

Now here is the Rule of the Week:

We thought we would simply leave you with the difference between Contest vs Contact:

463211-bd647ee2-cac6-11e4-9148-9de01b3d72a012.1 CONTACT AND CONTEST
Sanction for contact infringements: Penalty pass
When attacking, defending or playing the ball, opposing players may come into physical contact with each other. Provided the players do not interfere with each other’s play or use their bodies to gain an unfair advantage over their opponent, it is deemed to be ‘contest’ and play continues. ‘Contact’ occurs when a player’s actions interfere with an opponent’s play whether these are accidental or deliberate.

EAT WELL MEET YOUR NETBALL GOALS

With finals upon us – thought it was important to share some ideas that Kerry Leech (Accredited Practising Dietitian & Advanced Sports Dietitian, who works with the Australian Netball Diamonds)  gave our Rangers CAPS girls recently.  Check out her website for healthy recipes Eat Smart Diet Recipes

Kerry Leech

  • Session Overview:
  • The game of Netball has given Kerry many things – lifelong friendships, life skills and even got her started in her career as a Dietitian/Nutritionist.  It is important we ALL give back to our sport that gives us so many opportunities
  • Good eating habits set you up to play good netball but also set you up for life.
  • You need to eat well and meet your nutrition goals to meet your netball goals.
  • Most Often asked question:  “Should we have oranges at half time?”  Kerry’s answer “It is a nice tradition so by all means keep it up but DRINKING WATER is more important”
  • Sleep is essential – teenagers 9-10 hours sleep.  This is when the body repairs and builds muscle tissue.
  • EAT CARBOHYDRATES before and after training and at meals for recovery.
    • Attached Training Day Meal Ideas ….Kerry Leech Training Day Meal Ideas
    • Eat your main meal 3- 4 hours before your game
    • May follow up with a light snacks 2 hours before
    • If you have to run between umpiring and playing – some cut up fruit and maybe 1-2 lollies but especially WATER
    • Brain uses 30% of carbohydrate so a low intake can cause you to become angry, not calm and have poor decision making.  An example of this on the netball court can be poor passing.
  • PLAN AHEAD & TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your eating
    • players (not parents) need to pack their own lunch bag.
    • Write your parents a note of what you would like them to buy at the supermarket – of course choosing from healthy options above.
  • STAY HYDRATED –
    • carry a water bottle with your always to ensure you drink enough water, 6-8 glasses a day.  Get the app for your phone to remind you to drink.
    • dehydration causes fatigue which may cause cramps
    • It takes a day to catch up if you become dehydrated – so don’t leave it to before the game.  Suggested eating small amount of salty food after sport to help increase your water retention.
    • Sports drinks contain 8-10 teaspoons of sugar – they are not needed for one game of netball.  May consider during a whole day carnival.

YOU ARE ALL INVITED….

YES! – see the rule of the week.
